Summary
Trafficking in persons (TIP) for the purposes of exploitation is believed to be one of the most prolific areas of international criminal activity and is of significant concern to the United States and the international community. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), some 20.9 million individuals today are estimated to be victims of forced labor and related TIP. As many as 17,500 people are believed to be trafficked into the United States each year, and some have estimated that 100,000 U.S. citizen children are victims of trafficking within the United States. Overall, issues related to U.S. anti-TIP efforts include the effectiveness of current programs, whether there is duplication among these programs, and whether there is sufficient oversight of monies spent on anti-trafficking activities. Ongoing international policy issues include how to measure the effectiveness of the U.S. and international anti-TIP responses, the impact of U.S. Department of State's annual country rankings, and the use of unilateral aid restrictions. Domestic issues include whether there is equal treatment of all victims -- both foreign nationals and U.S. citizens, as well as victims of labor and sex trafficking; and whether current law and services are adequate to deal with the emerging issue of domestic child sex trafficking (i.e., the prostitution of children in the United States). Other overarching issues include whether all forms of prostitution (i.e., children and adults) fit the definition of TIP, and whether sufficient efforts are applied to addressing all forms of TIP, including not only sexual exploitation, but also forced labor and child soldiers
